Too much powah
« on: September 30, 2016, 02:45:08 PM »
Well.. yep finally blew my HG haha!


Cylinder 5 of all things, but whatevers. 2 leaks into the coolant, and 1 into a near by oil passage. Seemed to only really be an issue under boost until the oil part blew up.

I had sweating on the overflow hose, looked weird, rubbed it off and it was oily. Thought meh. Noticed it again a week later, might as well pop the radiator cap off, OMG SO MUCH OIL hahaha


So, after some fastnel bolts (100$), and a new cummins gasket, moar powah time.

I think they're a good replacement for stock bolts, but the don't hold a candle to real studs.. price is good though :)

I was looking at the ARP 625's.. DANG they're expensive! ($1200 USD)...

Yea no thanks. 

With the timing tuning I am doing via the Quadzilla I really need Studs to prevent my dumb tuning.

Homie says he's got trucks 700-800+ running the mighty bolts without issue.

I think it all comes down to prep. People not lubing the bolts etc
